The Apartment #111

by

Rick raced to his apartment and burst through the door, frightening both Tracey and Timmy.
Tracey's shock was magnified when she saw Rick's face. Rick stood over Timmy, staring down at him for forever before picking him up and hugging him, unable to hold back the tears.
Tracey reached for them both.
"Rick! What's happened?"
Timmy began to cry.
"Rick! Tell me! What's the matter?"
It was a minute or two before Rick could control himself enough to speak properly, and even then all that came out was "Timmy. Fire. Burning."
Confused and frightened, Tracey let her tears flow too.
